Faculty and students at Rutgers University in New Jersey are demonstrating their “enlightened” sense of tolerance by protesting the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s invitation to speak at the 2014 Rutgers commencement ceremony later this year.
The Faculty Council of Hate Speech at Rutgers’ New Brunswick campus is trying to have the invitation rescinded. They are joined in their efforts by students who are also condemning Ms. Rice as commencement speaker and the New Brunswick Faculty Council of Hate Speech is hoping that other members of their cabal in Camden and Newark will join them as well.
The Council passed a resolution last week asking the university’s Board of Governors to have Rice dragged off in chains and flogged for daring to express an opposing view to “The Tolerant Ones,” as the Council members call themselves.
“Intolerance is our weapon and deceit our shield,” said one disgruntled faculty member. Another said that, “being the first black woman to serve as National Security Adviser and the nation’s Secretary of State will offer her no relief for her transgressions.”
“Her resistance to groupthink is an abomination to academia,” one professor retorted as his fellow academics approvingly nodded their heads in unison.
As of yet, the Rutgers Board of Governors and administration has not seen the light of illumination cast by the faculty and students and have not changed their decision, though campus police were seen performing enhanced detainment and free speech suppression drills.
